Maura is a twenty three year old who is still coping with her parents’ sudden death two years ago. She recently graduated from college and now has her own catering business. A best friend-roommate who has been there through it all and helps make life manageable.
Until first love Pierson Hammer comes walking back into her life.
Pierson has demons of his own, after serving in the military for five years. Tormented from his past and present. He comes home hoping to make amends with Maura.
Can Maura forgive Pierson for leaving her all those years ago? Can she trust him with her future? Will she open herself up completely?
1. Tell me a little about yourself.
I have been happily married to my husband for twelve years. And I have a wonderful step son who is very tech savvy and a great helper with all that techy stuff. I developed a love for reading at a young age and it has stuck with me through adulthood. I also love reading just about anything in my genre. I will try anything once!
2. What situation or event inspired you to write ‘Coming Back to You’?
Well it originally started when Maura popped into my head and she was talking ALOT. But I could not figure out the male lead for the LONGEST time. I was reading about the war and the effect it has on our soldiers, and Pierson came to life that very instant. And the story formed from there.
3. Describe your book in three to five words.
Forgiveness, redemption, reconnecting, first love.
4. So, this is your first novel? How long have you been writing and what finally pushed you to write the novel?
Yes it is my first novel. I’ve always been a thinker and wrapped in my own little world. And Maura would not shut the hell up. So I HAD to write. She’s been in my head a long time.
5. Do you have a plan for future publications or is ‘Coming back to you’ set to be a stand alone novel?
It is a stand alone novel. But there is an event that happens in that one that sets off Book Two, two NEW characters and how that event affected them. But you wouldn’t have to read Coming Back to You to read Book Two. But you would understand the situation better.
6. What were the best and worst experiences you’ve had whilst writing/preparing ‘Coming Back to You’ for publication?
The best experience is writing the story itself. The worst experience I would say is finding the time to write since I already work two jobs and I’ve lost plenty of sleep over it!
7. What’s ‘the dream’ when it comes to your writing career, your ultimate goal?
My Ultimate goal is to be able to make a living writing.
About the Author:
I Love love love to read. I’ve even had a story stuck in my heart for well over a year. I put pen to paper but ended up giving up on it. That was over a year ago.
Well that same story is still stuck in my head, so now I am determined to get it ALL down and put out there.
I am happily married and have an awesome stepson. We call ourselves the Three D’s.
It is my little family and I would do anything for them.
Right now I am working two jobs, trying to eat healthy & workout and I’m writing. Getting my reading done during any spare moments I have.
